I live in Northern Kentucky about 18 miles south of Cincinnati. My install was done by Kentuckiana Satellite which is based in Louisville (120 miles away!!!!). I am very pleased with Voom as I do get all of the available HD over the air channels (channels 5 (NBC), 9 (ABC), 12 (CBS), 19 (FOX), 48 (PBS), 54 (PBS), and 64 (WB)). I have not really had much issue with rain fade – on Saturday, May 1st we were having some strong storms and the service (satellite only) was out for about 15 minutes. I have not noticed any issues with light or medium rain but its only been fours weeks since my install.
Got hooked up 3 days ago and the software d/l took the first night. I LOVE THIS SERVICE. I cant see why people don't like cinema 10 they are all great old movies. No offense but most of you must be under 30 and don't appreciate them, I do.
I have seen no sprites no micro stutters at all, just crisp clear picture.
The only thing I can say negative is that my samsung 1-160 I think it is got all my local channels on a preamp-ed square shooter antenna at 100 % signal strength most of the time but the Voom box can't get my NBC local at all. I don't think it is a mapping problem at all as the other box got it and I have seen a picture every once in a while abit broken up. So I was thinking of trying the stealth to see it changes. But again my samsung got all the channels fine. I wonder if it could be a software issue like the sat strength meter is?
Anyway Voom Rocks !!! buy it, lease it but just get it you won't be disappointed. IMHO.
Congrats! I am a Cleveland Voomer. Ironically, the NBC local here is the only OTA channel that seems to be fine at times and breaks up/pixelates at other times. All the other locals are solid, I am using the Stealth. I dont think I can adjust it much more unless an inch or so makes a big difference?
Does anyone know if slight OTA antenna adjustments can make a big difference?
Thanks Ilya , I have to say I love most of of the service. Most people have a few channels they think are crap but I really like most all of it. Even Moov has changed the format . Now they show landscapes with the music at times.
